Hibernating


What a winter.  If I could choose I would hibernate like a bear.  I'm dreaming of my spring flowers and looking through magazines and catalogs.  The painting is one I did after finding a type of flower I've never grown or even painted before. I long for the mornings I can sit out on my back porch and sip coffee.  I even promise not to yell at the squirrels.  Oh spring where are you? But I don't recall any better springs than the ones after long hard winters.  Oh the metaphors...  So for now I try not to let the longing kill the present moment.

It's only in the last few years that I discovered hellebores--they're the prettiest flowers, aren't they?~ I've never grown them that I recall, though I have seen them in local nurseries. You'll inspire me with your lovely painting of them.

Hi Amy, I wish I could send you our early spring. I just took some daffodil photographs from my garden, as they are the first signs of spring here. Your painting is beautiful! Stay warm until the spring sun comes your way~
